Design Services In Exchange For Equipment

I would like to offer my services as an established, experienced and competent graphic designer in exchange for letterpress equipment. This may sound like an odd offer, but I am very sincere in my proposal.

I am the third generation in my family to work in the print industry. My grandfather operated a linotype machine for a major Boston newspaper for many years. My father worked for a custom stationery letterpress print shop when he was just a teenager. Now I am a graphic designer working for a major design agency in South Carolina. Unfortunately, all the letterpress equipment that my grandfather collected has disappeared over the years. I have decided to bring back the letterpress tradition to our family and keep it alive for posterity. However, I am starting at absolutely square one and with a tight budget I’m going to have to be a little creative in my attempts.

While I am currently saving for future purchases, I want to post this ad in hopes that I can help some in this community while helping build my collection at the same time. If you are interested please contact me and I will be more than glad to share with you my capabilities, work experience and portfolio. No inquiry is too small.

Thank you very much.
